KENINGAU – Bishop Cornelius Piong contemplated the mystery of the Incarnation as revelation of God’s saving love at the Manger after celebrating the Christmas Midnight Mass at St Francis Xavier Cathedral Dec 24.

The prelate said that each time we celebrate Christmas, it brings hope, faith and arouses love in our life.

He pointed out that after having just entered into the Year of Mercy, the birth of Jesus itself is an expression of God’s mercy for us for He comes to save us from slavery of sin.

“What should we do?  What can you do?” he posed to the faithful.

The prelate proposed “We should step forward and walk in this way of ‘mercy’ in our life.  But no one is capable of doing this by himself; only in Jesus would we be able to take the step out of darkness to live the light of life, in goodness and mercy.” – Aldrin Benedict
